How to Have the Perfect Day at Keukenhof with Kids

How to Have the Perfect Day at Keukenhof with Kids

We recently visited Keukenhof in Lisse, The Netherlands.  This world famous Flower Park dates back to the 1500s starting as a fruit and vegetable garden.  Once Keukenhof Castle was built, landscape architects came in and designed the basis of what is now Keukenhof Gardens.  Today, Keukenhof is home to over seven million blooming flowers and allows visitors from all over the world to experience living catalogs from over 100 companies and 500 flower growers.  If you're visiting The Netherlands in the spring, Keukenhof and the surrounding gardens must be on your list.

Best of New Orleans with Kids: Audubon Aquarium

Best of New Orleans with Kids: Audubon Aquarium

As soon as we entered the Aquarium, I knew our 2-year old was going to love it.  The entrance is decorated with 3 life size sharks; including a Whale Shark!  After a quick stop in the lobby for a preemptive potty break, we make our way around to walk through the Great Maya Reef.  I LOVE WALK-THROUGH AQUARIUMS.   This surrounding view of the sharks, sting rays and fish is impressive.  We walked through as three scuba divers were cleaning, feeding the fish and one was carving a pumpkin!! Yes, he was IN THE TANK carving his Halloween pumpkin!  It was humorous and impressive as he had to fend off several curious sting rays!

DockATot + Travel

"Now, I don't know what voodoo is attached to this dang DockATot, but it worked a true miracle that only sleep deprived parents can fully appreciate.  It took our crappy sleeper and flipped her to sleeping champ.  A couple weeks after using it, she was sleeping through the night without waking at all.  We became functioning humans again."

I left my Husband and Still-nursing Son in Another Country on Accident

"...I was pretty thrilled with myself because I knew I would have time to get seats and get situated and all Jimmy would have to do is get on the train and give us food!!  PERFECT!!  We board the train. (<-- WORST decision we make all day) My parent’s grab a table and the 4 seats and take Charletta with them.  I am battling bicyclists to get our giant double stroller on the train.  After they finally get their bikes loaded and I get the stroller situated the door to the train closes and the train starts moving. IT. STARTS. DRIVING. AWAY....."
